Voyage of the Moondancer

We are following a dream of adventure and learning. Travelling under sail, in the good ship Moondancer, through Europe, the Canaries, Cape Verde and West Africa.

We are a group of musicians, story tellers, environmentalists and educators passionate about exploring the world we live in. We are working with local people along the way to create music, films, environmental and educational programmes.

This website is an opportunity for you to participate through stories, songs and pictures. We hope that you get inspired to follow your own dreams. Feel free to get in touch, share your thoughts and maybe even join us!

WANT TO DONATE TO HELP FUND THE MOONDANCER VOYAGE?

The Offer

We wish to share this journey with the world. We realize that for many it is hard to make such a trip and so we offer this to you through stories, movies and song. We hope to run trainings and work with people we meet along the way promoting cultural exchange and understanding through collaborative projects. We will keep you in the loop as the journey unfolds.

The Request

We have discovered why it only seems to be the ‘haves’ who ‘have yachts’ and have found our selves totally out of pocket having invested everything into the boat. We were booked for a youth conference in the south of Spain but had to pull out as we were forced to wait out an Atlantic storm in Falmouth for a week. It is hard making a deadline under sail power. If any one has contacts along our route who would be interested in collaborations do let us know and if you feel inspired and wish to support with the donation button please feel free.

Online Busking

Busking is something we have done many times in our lives and it’s always a great chance to go out there on the streets, meet the people and earn a bit of cash along the way… Well, as you have by now realized we are in need of earning some cash and so we would like to offer you some online busking performances and if you would like to drop a Euro in the hat please do.

We may be travelling under the power of wind as our ancestors have done for thousands of years, but how do we really care for our Planet??
